“Teaching in London –

the adventure of a lifetime”

says Bronwyn Ward-Manson, Director DJM Personnel 

Here are her words:  

” London…!!

fabulous, dazzling and diverse. A place like no other, a place with something for everyone. Great to visit – great to party & even better to work in. That’s what I love about it. It has something for everyone.

…working here can have surprises..

” As much as it was a was a shock when I first arrived in London to begin my teaching adventure, it was also one of the best experiences of my personal and professional life. I married a Scot (woo hoo) and after a few more adventures, we had the opportunity to build our own supply teaching agency. 

…the adventures I had with agencies

Before creating DJM, I initially taught with, and then moved into Management for, a large corporate Supply Teaching agency in London. 

It was an eye opening, breath sucking-in experience. It was a different world from anything I had experienced in my past life in education in Australia. The best thing I can say is that these experiences fired my passion and determination to build a very different, very human and compassionate type of teaching agency. This was and still is, most needed in all teaching agencies.

… and when the opportunity came

DJM Personnel was ‘born’ 

Our motivation seventeen years ago was to build a teaching agency which treated teachers and schools with respect and one that valued who they are as human beings, with unique needs, fears and aspirations. 

Being privately owned, professionally managed and proudly independent means we are flexible and able to adapt to meet the unique needs of the schools we recruit for & the needs of the high quality teachers we recruit.  

DJM has teachers from all walks of life, all age groups & varying years of experience. We know each individual teacher has many positive qualities and we build on these knowing what works for one may not work for another.

Our priorities of

  • taking care of our teachers personal and professional wellbeing &
  • providing enjoyable and rewarding teaching experiences.

is why DJM has gained an outstanding reputation as one of London’s leading teacher placement organisations




Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to prove to myself dreams do come true. Bron you gave me the best school I could have ever hoped for. I can’t thank you enough. The meet-ups, cards for encouragement and perseverance, the text messages, the unique sense of family with DJM that you wouldn’t get with other agencies and your Australian personality made my experience in London unforgettable!” Lillie, Adelaide Australia (July 2017)
